Superhero Hype! has learned that Lionsgate is really digging what writer/director Frank Miller is doing with Will Eisner’s The Spirit. They’ve already signed him for two sequels to the graphic novel adaptation and, from what the studio has seen, are expecting it to be a blockbuster when the action-adventure opens on January 16, 2009.

The Spirit tells the visceral, action-packed story of a man (Gabriel Macht) who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) — who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face — has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City’s rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront… all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader.

Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Sarah Paulson, Paz Vega, Jamie King, Dan Lauria, Stana Katic, Johnny Simmons and Louis Lombardi co-star.

Caroline.

I think it sounds like a very intelligent and original film. I think it sounds like it will be a big film.



Just to let you know: Scarlett will be on Regis & Kelly Feb. 22 :smile:



Caroline.

When will you have the video and caps for that on this here?.



Caroline.

I don’t think that show is shown outside of the American is it?, I will have to wait to see the video and caps for that on on here if it isn’t.
